Rush Tattoo in Chengdu
It had been years since my last tattoo, and I’ve wanted another for some time now. My friend Nick who is opening a new bar and restaurant (Grumpy Moose) here in Chengdu had some work done of recent weeks. The shop is called QG Tattoo, and they are located very close to the Renaissance hotel. Just up, and in back. My artist was Liu Nuo, recommended by Nick. I stopped by the week before to talk design ideas. I’ve always loved the cover to Rush’s album Caress of Steel. She would try to sketch it out. A couple days later she started sending drawings. Fantastic work, I said Okay, lets do this! The day of she showed me another sketch which was even better. I was very glad to see the cleanliness of this place, and her work station. Great care to wash hands, use soap, wrap the things in plastic, rubber gloves even changed. Once we got started with the actual tattoo, it was about 3 hours of work. I’m very happy with it, and already thinking of the next one. Great work Liu Nuo, great shop QG Tattoo.
